PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless On July 15th the latest Android super-phone was released by Motorola and Verizon Wireless. All hail the Droid X. The release was not without controversy though. The Droid X, while greatly raising the bar for Android phones in general, does so at the expense of the very power users and community that made the original Droid the gotta-have phone it became. Alienating this group may have far reaching consequences for Motorola.

Phones should be designed around needs of 100% of users.

That's impossible due to conflict of interest.

Tell me, how big is percent of people who think phones should self-destruct when manufacturer wishes so?

They lock up if you load a foreign ROM which only matters to 1% of the population. 99% of the population doesn't even know what a ROM is.

And how many users like exploding phones? They should advertise it as such. They should put big red letter saying: This EXPLODES WHEN WE DECIDE!! [

I wonder who will buy it when they tell the truth.

That wouldn't be the truth because the phone doesn't actually explode.
